Notice the clever out-of-context quote. And no ellipses or any
other indication that he omitted a critical part, which was:

"And even then, their factual determinations bind only the poeple
involved in the lawsuit, and nobody else."

Rjack seems to think that everything that a court of appeal says must be
objectively true.

Rjack is mistaken.

The courts do not do objective research the way sientists do. The courts
simply decide which of two parties (in a civil case) made a better
argument.
